EMBO Workshop on Physics of Integrated Biological Systems

Registration open until June 1st for EMBO workshop “Physics of Integrated Biological Systems – Biological Physics of Morphogenesis” in Cargese, Corsica, September 11-21, 2018.

About the Workshop

Over the past ten years, physical approaches to biological problems have played a central role in revealing the mechanisms that drive many biological phenomena. However, few courses introduce how this collaboration between fields actually works.

This EMBO Workshop offers young researchers, graduate students or post-docs, a training session centered on interactions at the interface between physics and cell and developmental biology, to gain an integrated view from the molecular scale to the cell to the organism, but also interrogating the scalability of approaches in the context multi-scale systems.

Sessions include:

  • Physics of biological polymers
  • Polymers and molecular motors
  • Dynamic partitioning of the cell
  • Cell mechanics
  • Growth and morphogenesis
